Sunday Respite – ‘Finding Beauty’


For today’s Sunday respite -A journey to another magical spot on our beautiful planet, accompanied by the passionate, uplifting and meditative music by Paul Lawler and Mark Holland, “Finding Beauty” out of the album “Planting the Seed”. Wishing everyone a wonderful day with much peace. I suggest watching it in full screen.



Sunday Respite – ‘Ready for the times to get better’


Doc Watson and “Ready for the times to get better.”  My choice for a Sunday Respite. A bit different than my usual mellow picks, but with all that went down this week it seemed appropriate. Wishing you a wonderful Sunday..

Sunday Respite – Antelope Canyon


For Today’s Sunday Respite I chose a soundscape showing us one of Nature’s wonderful gifts. I suggest watching this in full screen.

Antelope Canyon is the most photographed slot canyon in the world. It is located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona, and managed by Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park. In the video: Lower Antelope Canyon and Upper Antelope Canyon.

Music: Mystic Crock – Nomad – 05 – Introverted

Sunday Respite – Homeward Bound to the ‘Shenandoah’



On a personal note, I bid Florida an adieu. I can’t say exactly a fond one, but alas the chapter ends. I begin a new one. New beginnings in a Masonic retirement community. Now closer to the old Bunker and family and friends. I missed the seasons, the colors, cool mountain breezes and the lovely stream that meandered through the homestead. Tomorrow I will arrive at my destination with excitement and some trepidation. An acknowledgement that time has taken a toll on mind and body and well, enough said. In a more glum moment I was going to choose “Hotel California” but this seems a better fit.

I had chosen this piece once before, and seems so fitting now.

Sunday Respite – Lux Aurumque for Strings


I chose Eric Whitacre’s piece for this Sunday’s respite. It seemed to fit the mood of a waning October moving into the usually bleak November found in the Northern climes. Wishing everyone a wonderful day.


Sunday Respite – Autumn Leaves

Giovanni Marradi – Autumn Leaves is my selection for my Sunday Respite. This is the well-known Autumn Leaves that we are familiar with, though I was not familiar with the introduction. I suggest watching it in full screen. Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Sunday Respite – Magic Autumn

Autumn is a magical season. Enjoy the splendor of the warm autumn colors. Music: “La symphonie du vide” from the album -“Quiet Life vol.2”- by David Schombert. I suggest watching this in full screen. More of his work can be found at

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.
